This audio assignment is called Over-Dramatic Reading. The purpose of this project is to choose any written material and read it in a way that alters the original material. It could be read at an odd pace, overly excited, sad, etc.
The written material I used was a song called “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. I chose this material because I thought it would be a great idea to read a song that is suppose to make the listener happy, in a slow and odd pace. I basically did the opposite of what the song means; I turned it into a sad song but using the same lyrics. I recorded myself in the software Audacity using a USB mic called MXL. Hopefully you guys enjoy it.
